ravi_patent posted a topic in Indian Telecom / General Newshttp://www.moneycontrol.com/news/cnbc-tv18-comments/bharti-vodafone-idea-may-form-strategic-alliance-for-3g_496911.html If you are a Vodafone customer and live in an area where Vodafone has not received 3G spectrum, don’t fret. You may still be able to receive 3G services if Bharti Airtel or Idea have won spectrum in the area, without changing your service provider, reports CNBC-TV18’s Kritika Saxena quoting sources. It is learnt that the three players are in talks for a strategic alliance for rolling out 3G services pan India. Sources add that the 3G deal between all the three telecom companies is likely to come through by mid-November, while the tripartite agreement will be based on revenue sharing model. If the alliance is finalised then it will cater to 33 circles, sources say. Bharti Airtel won 13 circles, Idea obtained 11 circles and Vodafone got 9 circles in the bidding. Though Bharti CFO confirmed that they are in talks to form alliance, he refused to comments on the names of telecom companies yet. Meanwhile, Vodafone also said that they are in talks with quality players for a tie up and will make announcement in due course of time. Idea too added that they are talking with leading telcos for 3G tie-up.
